National Center for Science Education
The National Center for Science Education defends the teaching of evolution in public schools. This site provides: reviews of current anti-evolution activity; the history of the creation/evolution controversy, including the "Intelligent Design" movement; and resources for parents, teachers, school boards, and the general public.

PBS Evolution Series Website
Online lessons provide multimedia pathways to help students understand evolution and the nature of science. Each lesson focuses on an essential question and contains two to three activities. Short videos address topics such as the nature of science, the nature of the evolution controversy, and why evolution matters today. 

Science Explorations: Animals, Adaptation and the Galapagos Islands
Three levels of investigations introduce students to the kinds of evidence Darwin encountered on his voyage and the critical thinking he engaged in. The program is a collaboration between the Museum and Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education, and media company.
